Give yourself the chance to fail.

Whoa! What?

I want you to fail at something - on purpose!?

That doesn’t make sense.

Actually, I’m not suggesting that you fail on purpose. I’m suggesting
that you try something that you’ll find really difficult. Something
that if you succeeded you’d really grow. Push yourself - hard! A bit
like yesterday’s guide of stepping outside of your comfort zone today
is about taking that to the nth degree.

So what will happen if you fail? You’ll be able to draw some
inspiration from the fact that you tried, maybe even came close.
Learnt what you might be able to do differently next time in order to
succeed. Realise that taking risks and raising your head above the
parapit drives you forward. If you only attempt things that you’re
pretty sure you can achieve how will you experience something

Going for it when others are afraid to or tell you you’re not able
enhances your living experience, it will get your adrenalin pumping
and it will put a smile on your face - once the grimace has worn off.

The world’s leading marketers have a term for failure - they call it
testing! So go and test.

But what if you succeed? Then wow! No more needs to be said.

Take the opportunity today to thank someone unexpectedly! It'll change their day. :)


We all like to be thanked, it shows us that we are appreciated and
valued and probably more fundamentally - noticed!
As we thank another we are sending that person something intangible
and immeasurable. But watch the reaction of the recipient. Some will
smile broadly and some will beam proudly while others will have a more
subtle reaction. A reation there will be though. In sending out that
thanks you will automatically open yourself to recieve it more readily
yourself and therefore feel valued and appreciated aswell.
Get in to the habit of enjoying thanking people and it could turn out
to be one of the easiest ways to positively influence your life and
the lives of those around you. When you search for the opportunity to
thank unexpectedly it will have the biggest impact. It’s second nature
to most people to thank someone if we have the door held open for us
or if someone gives us a lift but find that occurance when someone
does something they don’t expect you to notice. Maybe the postman will
pick up a piece of litter off your front lawn or the shop assistant
might run to fetch that bottle of milk you forgot while you’re at the
checkout. Search for it and you’ll find it and when you do you’ll find
yourself searching for that opportunity all the time.

Have fun looking. :)

for now
